Santa, ehhh sorry, the postman just brought in a new toy here.
It is a radio, but not HAM-radio, sorry.
It is time to retire my soon to be 30-year-old Sony FM stereo receiver.
The successor is going to be this Yamaha Network/FM/DAB+ receiver, which has all kind of bells and whistles. (Just barely tested it, but it sounds very good)

After serving me for many years, my good old keyer, microham mkII stopped keying last night.
Of course this happens at the least convenient time, during a contest.
I got an idea of where the fault lies, but if any of you guys has a schematic if the MKII lying around, I would VY much like a copy.
